Joseph Nathaniel Paulson (@dorageh) and Paul Igor Costea (@CosteaPaul) are both mathematical and computer scientists. Their studies focus on processing large metagenomic data, specifically with gut microbiota and health in mind. They have corresponded recently through articles about normalization methods to get signal from complex omics data in Nature Methods. They were happy to give us their points of view…

Elena Buelow published under Willem van Schaik's supervision her work about the monitoring of patients in intensive care units to assess the selective digestive decontamination using a metagenomics approach. She accepted to give us highlights of her study which give new insight about the gut resistome. 1) What is your background? I have obtained my Master’s degree in Medical Biology…

Gnotobiotic animals have long been used to highlight major functions of the intestinal microbiota such as its contribution to trophic development of gut tissues, immune maturation, direct protection from colonization/proliferation of pathogens (the barrier effect) and more recently its implication in metabolism and fat storage. Yet gnotobiology had never been used in a systematic way as a screening tool. This…

Catherine Juste studied agronomic engineering, and then became Doctor of Science, specializing in nutrition and physiology. She became passionate about environmental microbiology and is currently developing environmental proteomics of the gut microbes at INRA. She developed an innovative preparative pipeline to explore myriads of bacterial proteins that are expressed in the lumen gut of human hosts, and that may have…

The gut mobile metagenome comprises mobile genetic element (MGE) like bacterial viruses, known as bacteriophages. Although few studies showed that there is high interpersonal variation, little is known about how the gut microbiota react under phage attacks itselfs. Reyes and colleagues used gnobiotic mouse to improve the understanding of viral-bacterial dynamics. They built an artificial microbiota using 15 bacterial sequenced…

There are many questions surrounding the relationship between the functioning of our human body and the presence of the microbes that live in and on us. The current state of knowledge does not allow us to fully understand what impact our microbiota has on our lives. To approach this question, it is important to find out how our gut metagenome…

Humans are not (and have never been) alone. From the moment we are born, millions of micro-organisms populate our bodies and coexist with us rather peacefully for the rest of our lives. This microbiome represents the totality of micro-organisms (and their genomes) that we necessarily acquire from the environment. Micro-organisms living in or on us have evolved to extract the…

Moderated by Paul W O'Toole and Joël Doré (@dorejoel)   Moderators aimed to make technical differences between the two categories of microbial community analysis, to help understand methods involved in gut microbiota analysis and to answer clinical questions involving analysis of the microbiota.   The human gut microbiota is the collection of bacteria, archea, virus and fungi. Paul O'Toole indicated…
